Well I started all alone and I watched you grow
And now please, don't take this away from me
You rise, then you fall, sometimes it seems like you're not there at all
But that's the way it should be

Well, take me for example
And erase your opinions about me, only time will tell
Where will you be? Where have you gone?
Two years of my life, now it's all gone

    I read in an interview once that J.b. stands for "just busted"

    Jordan had a party at his house when his parents were out of town. When his parents came back they found a condom in the bathroom and a beer bottle by a plant and he got in trouble.

    All in all New Found Glory's songs don't make much sense as a whole. They just kinda skip around and leave a lot of thoughts open... thats why I like them so much.

    The best songs are the ones you grasp the concept and meaning of, but never fully understand. It makes me curious and keeps me listening. This song does that.

    i really dont know...but theres that play thing called JB...its about the book of job in the bible. and im not all religious or whatever but...

    in the book of job god and the devil make a bet kinda. the devil says that all these people worship god but thats because they have everything they want and need - take that shit away and people will stop having faith and will curse god. god says that they can test job - a dude whos really faithful. so they test job by doing all these horrible things to him, they kill his kids off in horrible ways, his wife leaves him, they send disease to him and he begs for death but they wont let him die. in the end he never really curses god - he asks why are you doing this to me? god asks something like 'where were you when i created everything' - basically saying that job (and humans in general) has such a small understanding of the universe and everything. in the end god gives job back his health and his wife comes back. so now that i sound like some total religious freak...i'll finish off by saying i guess it COULD make sense...but again i have no idea. just an idea

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
